BT may quickly launch a brand new broadband plan with improved speeds at cheaper costs.

Because it stands, Plusnet prospects can get the net beamed into their dwelling rooms for as little as £18.99 a month. For comparability, the most affordable month-to-month plan from BT prices £27.99 a month.
That sounds fairly good worth, however one factor Plusnet has but to embrace is full-fibre (FTTP or Full-Fibre To Premises) broadband speeds.
